Dry bar has been around many years. Well worth a visit for a couple of drinks, soak up the history and enjoy. Even if it wasn't 'famous' it's still a great bar.

Visited Manchester earlier this week to see the Stone Roses with my partner and friends. Despite it being very busy we were served quickly every time. Atmosphere and music were both great. Would definitely recommend.

We have been going to the Dry Bar for many years, and have always enjoyed the atmosphere. We went this time on a Sunday afternoon, so it was a little quiet.

9 friends and I went here for drinks. There are very long tables so we could all fit in comfortably, the staff members were nice and the drinks were too.
